AARRR

I haven't decided what Zack will be for Halloween, but I can take one costume off of the list. We went to Sam's Club this evening and as I was checking out Ryan decided to distract Zack by checking out the Halloween decorations. I guess there was a life sized - motion activated pirate with a funky light up eye and Zack started crying and clinging to daddy the instant he saw him. He even had to tell the receipt checker about the scary pirate as we leaving, while still clinging to dad. He asked multiple times throughout the night if the pirate was going to get him and even called me in about a half hour after he went to bed to ask if the pirate would get him. Ryan didn't help by referencing the pirate a couple times and refreshing Zack's memory.

I showed Zack pictures of him in his Halloween costume last year and some costumes in a catalog and tried to explain Halloween and trick or treating, but I don't think he is convinced that he is safe from the pirate. It should be an interesting Halloween this year.

Here is a picture of Zack pre-pirate when he didn't have any stresses in his life.

Oh no! Pirates are cool!! I guess he's just too young to appreciate the hotness of Johnny Depp. I hope Sophie doesn't end up being scared of them...seeing as she's gonna be one for Halloween!

Their little irrational fears at this age crack me up. Teagun hates when I go through a carwash - it makes him cry as we are doing it and then he will talk about the "scary water" forever afterwards. Now I never know whether I should take him with me when I go wash my car or not...

Aw, poor guy. Hopefully he doesn't see too many pirates on Halloween.

That picture is great!!! He's so adorable.
